    Cassette coming loose question

    After 10 or so rides I noticed that I was getting a funny sound when I was in the last 5 smaller gears. So after some fiddling I found it to be a loose cassette lock ring.

    Now I find it seems to come loose after every ride. I've put some extra torque on it, hoping that would fix it, but no dice. Any suggestions as to what this might be?

    Edit: Other than that, it's been a banging ride! Great job and look forward to breaking out the Delta for the coming cross season.

    If it was ridden with a loose lockring there is a chance the threads on the lock-ring or cassette body could be damaged; which would explain why it won't stay tight now.

    I recommend that you contact us directly to discuss, thanks.

    I, too have this issue. I called you as well Jeremy.. Brought my Guardian into the shop for the yearly tune up, was making some racket..LBS is saying that I need a new hub and referred to the Quando hub as an "off brand", and can't fit another cassette body on this hub. He suggested a whole new wheel and reuse cassette- I'm hoping you can help.
